Wow. Yolanda is completely barking mad. It's hard to watch... harder than Christi, who I thought could be disgraceful, because Yolanda seems to actually be bad for Elliana. And Elliana seems a sweetheart and a lovely little dancer, I wish her mum could just support her rather than push and berate and suffocate. A case of trying to live through her daughter, but with absolutely zero self-awareness of how mad she's coming across.
And I agree with the comments about Nia. Bang out of order. Advocating for oneself is fine, but she was just gobby and rude. And bratty and spoilt. If I was Abby, or any teacher, I wouldn't have accepted it.
Nia and Holly have been unjustifiably entitled for a couple of years now. I'm sure Nia assumed she'd be celebrated for being such a grown up, wise, self-advocating young woman but that's not how she came across at all. And what's with Holly's "why is Brynn leading the dance, why not Nia or Kendall?".... because Nia & Kendall are clearly the worst freakin' dancers on the team, and "team" includes the minis.
ETA: Sassafras I'd like to hear more dirt!
